Twice this year, and for the first
I lino In the history of the Niagara,
the voice of the mighty river hag
been mute. The first time was late
In February when, following a severe
northerly blow, the falls ran dry, and
low, for the Becond time, following a
levere sou'wester, when the flood Is
frozen solid from bank to bank.
Unprecedented weather has brought
about unprecedented conditions. On
Wednesday of laHt week the worst
pale of the season and the most vio
lent that the records of the weather
bureau have ever recorded for April
tore out of the southwest, and follow
ing the lakes and the channel of the
Niagara, left ruin in Its wake. The
solid Ice fields of Lake Erie were
rimmed from end to end and piled in
n huge conglomerate at the lower
end of the lake.
At Niagara Falls there had been
a heavy Ice bridge n the pool below
the cataract since the middle of the
winter. Under the Impact of the mass
of Ice from the lake above and the
added floods brought down by the
wind, the bridge gave way and began
to surge down the rapids; but before
It could win freedom In the ample
waters of Lake Ontario, the wind shift
ed again to the north. Instantly the
moving floes packed at the mouth of
the liver. Each Instant of cold con
gealed the pack more solidly and each
hour brought added pressure from
Unable to escape by Its natural
channels the level of the river rose
by leaps rnd bounds. The highest
flood level record from previous years
Is 28 feet above the normal. Friday
night the river was 40 feet above
Water poured over the window sills
of the power house of the Ontario Pow
er company, which had been placed
at what all engineers thought to be
a r.afe height, above any possible dan

with a few stretches excepted, covered

Conservative estimates place the
damage at $1,000,000.
All day Sunday a constant stream of
visitors poured down the railway
tracks, the trolley tracks, packed the
trains and the cars and even rode
and walked cross-country to see a
sight that is not likely to repeat it
self within the lifetime of the present
generation. Under a brlllant sun the
river lay white and glistening to the
horizon. And It was silent, absolutely
voiceless for the first time within
their memories. The weight of that
silence was an Imponderable thing,
but It hung heavy on all who listened,
with a chilling solemnity more awful
than the roar of the rapids.
HOUSE PASSES PAYNE BILL
One Republican Voted Against and
' Four Democrats For It.
After three weeks' consideration
the Payne tariff bill was passed by
the house of representatives by a vote
of 21" to 161. One Republican, Aus
tin (Tenn.), voted against the meas
ure, and four Democrats, all from
Louisiana, Messrs. Broussard, Estop
Inul, Pujo and Wlckllffe, voted for it.
An attempt by Champ Clark, the min
ority leader, to recommit the bill with
Instructions signally failed.
The final vote demonstrated the ca
pacity of the Republican organization
to get together. The situation with
respect to lumber was greatly relieved
to the Republican leaders when it be
came manifest that the advocates of
the proM)sltion placing It on the free
list were in the minority.
One of the principal changes ef
fected In the Payne bill since its In
troduction was the placing of petrol
eum on the free list. This involved a
more seriously contested fight than
any of the other amendments. Speak
er Cannon, during debate on the
amendment to reduce the duty, took
the floor In defense of the higher rate
of duty. Although an amendment to
place oil on the free list was lost
Thursday, a similar amendment tf
fered by Chairman Payne on Friday
Among the other Important unend
ments that have been made since the
bill came from committee were thoso
fiiiklng out the provision for a duty
on tea and the countervailing dtty
proviso on coffee. The elimination of
the maximum duty of 20 per cent on
coffee, contained In the maximum and

DIRECT NOMINATIONS BEATEK
Assembly Overwhelmingly Adopt Ad
verce Report of Judiciary Committee
The direct nominations bill as rtc
ommended by Governor Hughes le
celved its death blow In the assembly
at Albany, at least so far as the
present, session of the legislature
Is concerned. By a vote of 112 to 23
the assembly decided to sustain the
adverse report of the Judiciary com
mittee, which, with two dissenting
votes out of twelve, had registered its
disapproval of the measure.
Assemblyman Green, Introducer ol
the bill, at the meeting of the Judi
ciary committee endeavored to have
a report of the bill without recom
mendation, so that the vote In the
assembly might be upon the bill Itself
rather than upon the question of sus
taining the adverse report of a com
mittee. He was unsuccessful in thh, so with
Assemblyman Klein of Queens he sub
mitted a minority report When the
committee's report was submitted .Mr
Green endeavored to have Its consid
eration postponed one week, but his
motion, was defeated by a vote of 28
to 110, which, practically before the
debute began, Indicated the strength
of the opposition to the bill.
Seventy-five Republicans and thirty-seven
Democrats cast their votes
against the bill, while 18 Republicans
and 10 Democrats voted for it. Tho
vote was so overwhelming that Mr.
Green did not make the usual motion
MRS. SAMPSON CHITTED
Testimony of Defense Confined to Re
buttal of Gun Expert.
Mrs. Georgia Allyn Sampson, the
young woman who had been on trial
for her life at Lyons, N. Y., since a
week ago Monday on the charge of
having shot and kiled her husband,
Harry Sampson, was acquitted shortly
after 10 o'clock Friday night and was
Immediately given her freedom.
DlstrlT-t Attorney Gilbert In speak
ing of the verdict Bald: "I am satis
fied. I have done my full duty by the
people and the prisoner."
Mr. Gilbert, though a cousin of Mrs.
Sampson by marriage, stood to his
duty and prosecuted the case as vig
orously as the facta would permit.
The last day of the trial was spent
in presenting the defense's case, and
In listening to the closing addresses of
the state and the defense and to the
charge of Judge Rich. The brief
testimony of the defense was confined
chletly to abutting the testimony of
Dr. Albert H. Hamilton, a gun ex
pert, that the hole In Sampson's outer
shirt was made by a bullet fired from
a distance and that Harry Sampson
could not, therefore, have committed
suicide as the defense alleged. Dr.
Albert F. Hall of Fulton. N. Y., was
the gun expert who testified for the
Forcibly Deported From Martinique
and Shipped to France.
Prior to his being taken aboard the
steamer Versailles at Port de France,
Martinique, for deportation to France,
ex-President Castro prepared a writ
ten protest against the action of the
French gbvernment, which has been
submitted to the authorities there.
The removal of the former presi
dent of Venezuela from the hotel to
the steamer was not without Its piti
ful aspects. Immediately on the an
nouncement by the medical commis
sion who had made a lengthy physical
examination of Castro, that he was
quite capable of making the voyage,
the commissary of police with an es
cort of gendarmes invaded the hotel
and proceeded to his chamber. They
found the ex-nresident lying In bed.
and although he still protested that
he could not move they carried him
down stairs, the patient all the while
moaning dismally, on a mattress, and
placed him in a stretcher.
Officers from the United States
cruiser North Carolina, In civilian
dress, helped to make him ns comfort
able as possible, and then the stretch
er was picked up by four negroes and
taken to the dock. Gendarmes guarded
it and a crowd numbering fully 2,000
followed the procession.

force It Is enabled to exert over the
destinies of the world. Recounting
the wars in which the country had
been Involved, everyone of which he
declared had behind It some exalted
moral purpose, he said the nation had
been devoting itself pretty assiduous
ly to Its commercial advancement.
Quoting some of the leading statis
tics showing the material growth of
the country, ho said the natloi should
have confidence In Itself as the world
has confidence in It. The growth of
the United States had been so enor

Mr. Sherman recounted the propor
tion of the great staples that are raised
In the United States In comparison
with all other portions of the world.
"We have," he said, "twice as much
life Insurance as the rest of the world
and one-half as much money on depos
it In our savings banks as all the rest
of the world. Our expenditure for
education 13 two-thirds as much as Is
spent by all the rest of the world.
One-third of all the revenue collected
by the government Is ours, while our
debt Is about one-thirtieth of the debt
of the world.
"We have enrolled In our schools
twenty million students, seventeen

Kilbourne of this city Is the Inventor
of a trolley for use on electric rail

In operation, will save motormen and
conductors much trouble. It was
